Gauntlet (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
|Cost||Armor Class (AC)||Strength||Stealth||Weight|
|5 gp||+1 (partial armor)||—||—||2 lb.|
A pair of heavy leather padded gloves with interlocking metal plates and chainmail, primarily used to protect the user's forearms and hands from harm. You must wear both gauntlets to benefit from the bonus to AC. You have disadvantage on Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) checks while wearing gauntlets.
Partial armor only grants its AC bonus if you are wearing light or no armor. If you are wearing only one piece of partial armor, you are still considered to be wearing your base armor type (e.g. no armor or light armor). If you are wearing two or three pieces of partial armor, you are considered to be wearing the heaviest type of partial armor worn (e.g. medium or heavy armor). You cannot wear four or more pieces of partial armor.
